Explain lighttpd-plain

Docs are generally quite good, but forget to explain the difference between lighttpd and lighttpd-plain. Is the latter lighttpd with plain authentication enabled? – Danmichaelo (talk) 10:38, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

The difference between the two is the inclusion of a PHP FCGI container in lighttpd. I have updated Help:Toolforge/Web/Lighttpd#Default configuration to show the current config and added a comment in the config showing the additional config used by the lighttpd variant. --BryanDavis (talk) 21:15, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

Documentation appears to be wrong about PHP

Any attempts to add PHP to $HOME/.lighttpd.conf results in the server not running. I noticed this since there is no way to increase PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN, which limits tool users at a single time. AManWithNoPlan (talk) 19:57, 19 May 2022 (UTC)

Which statements in the documentation are incorrect? I'm not seeing any claim that the fastcgi.server config for ".php" files can be overridden in $HOME/.lighttpd.conf. -- BryanDavis (talk) 20:27, 19 May 2022 (UTC)
